Also see the other Mini Juke Box that Joe submitted
|This is another “mini” Jukebox that I purchased
from an eBay seller. As you can see it also uses the mini continuous loop
tapes (like the other one). The tapes go into the
side on this Juke box, not into the front like on the other one. This
Jukebox came with a few tapes as pictured;, however like most 8-track tapes,
the foil glue has dried and the tapes came apart when I tested two of them.
The player works fine but when the song ended so did the life of the tape!
These are quality-made cartridges, and they are held together by screws,
which makes them easy to fix. But like 8 tracks, they require patience if
you don’t want to ruin them. I had never seen this style of mine juke box
before anywhere; it could have been made before the other one, as this one
is a quality made unit and has replaceable light bulbs, screw in type, and
two motors, one for the tape drive and one for the spinning record. It also
has more detail inside the “window.” Inside there is a control for tape
speed and also one for volume. I have had many requests for information on
where to buy the tapes. The best bet here is just to watch eBay. These juke
boxes come up now and then but more then “than” then now.
